Samantha plays Pittsburgh tomorrow at Club Cafe on a bill with William Elliott Whitmore and Bluebird Midwest. My thanks to her for taking some time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, Samantha. Yeah, Pittsburgh on St. Paddy’s Day is kinda crazy. I usually try to steer clear of anywhere even near a bar.
